The Baby Bombers were ready for October; their manager was not.

New York's starters have gone only 3 2-3 innings, forcing the bullpen to log 13 1-3 innings already in the post-season.

Francona pulled ace pitcher Korey Kluber after 2 2/3 innings.

Michael Brantley replaced Encarnacion at designated hitter as the Indians tried to complete a three-game sweep and advance to the AL Championship Series.

Francona said Saturday that Encarnacion was unlikely to start Game 3 at Yankee Stadium, but the three-time All-Star hadn't been ruled out even though he used crutches and wore a boot during a day off in the series.

The Yankees catcher looked toward the dugout, indicating he felt strongly that his manager should challenge.

The excitement finally paid off in the bottom of the 13th inning.

When he was asked what he would do if he were not managing, Girardi said there were a few dream jobs he had in mind, but that they would most likely not be open to him.

But here is where it falls on Girardi.

Now, knowing that I had two challenges, in hindsight, yeah, I wish I would have challenged it. After replays the media and Girardi believed that the ball struck off Chisenhall's bat and not his hand. The two outcomes were either the end of the inning or losing a challenge and being in the same bases-loaded situation. "Any time a player tells me to check something, I don't automatically check it", the skipper said.

That last night's Yankees-Indians game continued for more than six innings after Lonnie Chisenhall's phantom hit-by-pitch should not distract you from the fact that this was the moment of the game. 1997 ALDS homer off Mariano Rivera and the Joba Chamberlain midges game a decade ago.

The Yankees had plenty of power, but it's not as if the Indians were in short supply across their gritty lineup when the series began.

Keep up with the latest as baseball's top teams contend for the title. There is plenty of fallout after his big mistake on Friday and he knows it.

Girardi said that nothing indicated that the call of a hit-by-pitch was not the correct call. And I think together, we'll figure it out. Usually, we give CC somewhere around 90 pitches. "But again, they make a lot of sacrifices so I can do this and that's why I need to talk to them".

Their best chance to rally came when Miller - whom they traded to Cleveland midway through the 2016 season - walked Chase Headley and Brett Gardner with two outs in the eighth. Jay Bruce, who homered and drove in three runs in Game 1, then smoked one but right at Gregorius. "I want Girardi gone". "I'll have the whole offseason to think about what I'll do moving forward, and that has not changed", Tanaka said on Saturday through his translator. Now, down 2-0 with three wins needed and Cleveland's Carlos Carrasco set for the series victor on Sunday, it may be too late.

The way Bauer pitched, the Yankees needed a near-perfect effort from Gray, who may have been feeling some déjà vu.

The ALDS should be tied 1-1. Girardi really earned this loss.
